CINEMA NAIRN is a small group of volunteers who love watching films on the big screen, and who wanted to see full-time cinema return to Nairn. It started in 2010, and with the help of the Nairn Community & Arts Centre and all our followers it has gone from strength to strength.

Films are screened in the Nairn Community & Arts Centre on King Street (just off the A96), and occasionally in the Little Theatre in Fishertown.

Admission is £5.00 for adults and £3.00 for those under 18 years of age. There is also a loyalty scheme - so get your card stamped each time you come and you'll get the sixth film free!

Remaining films for 2015:

Friday 25th September: Ida (2014) PG 13 (82 mins) 7.30pm Polish with subtitles

Yet another hidden gem in Nairn! Anna is a young novitiate nun in 1960s Poland, on the verge of taking her vows, when she discovers a dark family secret dating back to the years of the Nazi occupation. A gripping, highly acclaimed film from Poland.

Monday 5th October: 39 Steps (1935) U (86 mins) 2pm Matinee

Only the original and the best is good enough for Cinema Nairn goers, and Hitchcock’s version with Robert Donat is just that! You know the story and the scenery – some come along and watch it on the big screen with everyone else!

Friday 23rd October: Belle (2014) 12A (104 mins) 7.30pm

Touching story of the mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral, raised by her aristocratic great-uncle in 18th century England. Award winning performance from newcomer Gugu Mbatha-Raw.

Friday 27th November: Kon Tiki (2013) PG13 (111 mins) 7.30pm

The fantastic story of legendary explorer Thor Heyerdal's epic 4,300-mile crossing of the Pacific on a balsawood raft in 1947, in an effort to prove that it was possible for South Americans to settle in Polynesia in pre-Columbian times. Voted as Best Film in the 2014 Inverness Film Festival.

Monday 7th December: Brave (2012) PG (95 mins) 2pm Matinee

Second screening success (despite snow and ice)

Nairn film fans braved the slightly inclement weather to see 'Toy Story' and 'Kinky Boots' with 57 brave souls venturing out to the Community Centre - thank you all!

Cinema Nairn has a growing mailing list and should you wish to add your name to that list please contact us along with any films that you would like to suggest. Once we programme the screenings for the next few months we will be publicising them widely and regularly to try and increase the audience size.

The five films we have shown to date are just the start and we hope that in addition to regular monthly film nights that we may stage other (perhaps themed) screenings or films related to other events going on in the Nairn area ie Book & Arts Festival, Jazz Festival, Nairnshire Challenge.

Watch this space and watch some films...
